united states yesterday, a tempered and reflective barack obama talked to me about what it's like for him to be president and how it's changed him in five years in office. howard fineman is a political analyst and jonathan capehart is an msnbc contributor. of course, a "washington post" opinion writer. howard, i was really taken with your perception there. i actually missed it because i was so busy trying to prepare myself to follow up. but you hit something in your years of experience, presidents don't talk about what it's like to be me, if you will. >> no, they don't. and they don't do it in public. i mean, i've covered a lot of presidents, chris, and i've gotten to know them pretty upclose. and they are sometimes self-reflective. but usually in private and usually only momentarily. they don't let their guard down very much. but i think in this case in that interview yesterday which i still think was extraordinary, the president was kind of thinking out loud and talking out loud about his situation. let's face it, his poll ratings are down, his number one program is controversia

, it is hard to go take it away. so this point that once people have the obama care, talking about repealing it or taking it back becomes a very different issue than having never implemented it. does that mean it's sort of the end of that repeal discussion going forward? >> well, the repeal portion, yes. the fact is that the republicans have never had the repeal portion to offer. they kept saying, replace. they had the repeal, but they never had the replace. so right now, as you go forward, it is the law, it is being implemented, you're going to have to look, instead of replace, what you want to fix or drastically change. so that argument does come off the table. here's the problem with what the governor said. given that this is a new system, you can't running for re-election bet that everything is going to go perfect. as a matter of fact, it is more likely, and not because it's a democrat, but because it's government, that they're going to see more things go wrong, as we go forward. so if a republican is running -- a democrat is running for re-election in 2014, for them to double

very much with us. the current events i actually one thing i hope we can talk about. i think there might be some prospect for change. >> where? >> guest: one thing that happened. i started writing this weak in the -- book in the middle of barack obama's first term. at that time, people didn't understand that obama continued bush's policy. the surveillance and everything we were doing domestically. and so linda greenhouse referred my book to the wake-up call. people didn't wake up that much. people were not looking to re-examine the decisions that had been made in the fall of 2001 about what our antiterrorism strategies should be. so what i would say is there was a snooze alarm. and the wake-up call came with snowden. when he started releasing documents about what actually is going on behind the curtain and what kind of surveillance there is, i think people did start to pay more attention. i think for good reason. and so, well, i'll tell you i think it matters more than ever people be aware of what is going on and what is happening politically. there's pending in congress right now

ones who get the money. >> sounds a lot like -- i don't know -- capitalism. senator, president obama promised to not let detroit go bankrupt. he may have been talking about the auto industry or the city, but did the president lie? >> he's given a lot of promises. he promised we could keep our doctor if we liked them also. there have been a lot of things the president hasn't come through with. i think this is one of them and i think this is the difference between democrats and republicans. democrats are promising you something but not coming through. republicans are promising a real solution. this is also, we have had 50 years of trying government stimulus and it hasn't worked. now we're going to try a free market stimulus where the money gets in the hands of the businesses that can use it successfully to create jobs. >> let's turn the topic to race. let's be honest, senator, the republicans nor the democrats have done much to help african-americans get a job. five years of obama policies have led to high elevated unemployment in the black community and frankly the republicans are per

, president obama as media critic. i personally love when any president jabs the press because it gets us talking about fairness, both the medias and the administrations. eric dagen is the critic for the npr. jane, you used to be a long time fox news contribute for, so i wonder, do you think the president's right? i think he believes it. he was speak to an audience of young people at my university and he was saying that the idealism of young people was a great thing, clearly he wanted to address that audience and it is true that the media are divided i'd logically in cable use. i think he didn't want to call out fox necessarily because they haven't figured out how to deal with fox, frankly, but there's splits in the media. >> i think it's hypocritical to come on a channel that's known for catering to liberals and criticize the press for being div divisive. >> i spent 250 pages in my book last year that came out last year, race baiter talking about this exact issue, that there are cable channels that segment the audience and one way they do that is by pitting people against each ot

project. you talk about learning nothing. so i am very concerned. i think obama has a fantasy view of the world. reinforced by and inability to listen and with people around him who are at least as out of touch with reality as he is. i think that's really dangerous. and i think that we've been very lucky up to now but we shouldn't kid ourselves. the relative importance of the niceties in the world today is dramatically smaller than it was the day he took office. everyday that he's in office it's going to keep declining because foreign leaders are taking market of them and they don't find much there. spent in the back of the room from a contractor. >> i'm jim sharp. i of a two-part question. one is, are you going to run for president of the united states? >> i don't know him. >> second part, what would you do about job creation? >> well, look, this is not complicated. we have done this over and over in our history. the first thing you do is you favor job creators. that means -- by the congress as big a problem for california as anyone in the country, means less red tape, less regula

obama spoke yesterday where he talked about essentially the fact that he doesn't believe this is a done deal. he said, look, the chances of this deal with iran actually being ultimately successful are about 50/50. he also underscored the point that, look, this is a test. according to this administration, it's a six-month deal aimed at trying to see how serious iran really is about scaling back its nuclear programs. the president highlighting the fact that inspectors are in iran and the significance of that. again, essentially saying this is not a done deal, but it's something that -- it's a first step that he believes needs to be taken. important to point out he was speaking to a largely israeli audience, an audience that is skeptical of this deal that feels as though it doesn't go far enough. here's a little bit more of what president obama had to say. take a listen. >> if at the end of six months it turns out we can't make a deal, we're no worse off, and in fact we have greater leverage with the international community to continue to apply sanctions and even strengthen them. if,

the odds that the obama registration will just pulled the plug and say no troops after 2014? they have talked about that in the past. do you think they're going to do that? >> no, they are not. the only way that would happen is if afghanistan rejected any agreement and said we're not going to make that decision. not for quite awhile. >> carl levin issued a statement after you came back suggesting that perhaps the president should just ignore karzai at this point and look forward to a new president. what are your thoughts on that? do you think there may be a way around this? >> i think it is prudent to sort of tone it down a little bit. i think carl's opinion is if we go to april with the new president it would work. then you're putting yourself really close to the timeline. i do not think they want to get that close. the sooner we sign this agreement, the sooner there is evidence of stability in afghanistan. ultimately, we need to continue to try to see if there is some way to get this current administration to sign the agreement while also preparing for the possibility of having to wa
